Eight MW deal showcases ability to serve growing cloud market

QTS Realty Trust (NYSE: QTS) has doubled its custom data center agreement to support its rapid growth, the company said.

The hyperscale cloud provider selected QTS in early 2016 to provide more than 20,000 square feet and four megawatts of power. The new agreement dramatically increases the company´s usage to a total of 40,000 square feet and eight megawatts of power at the LEED Gold certified QTS Dallas-Fort Worth mega data center. The rapid pace of expansion was driven by the fast growing use of cloud services, coupled with QTS´ ability to quickly scale to its clients´ needs.

The customer joins a growing list of large public and private cloud providers choosing QTS for its scalable world-class facilities, security and compliance capabilities, and industry-leading customer service. This customer win comes after QTS´ recent announcement of Virtustream, an enterprise-class cloud provider and EMC Federation company, as a new customer and partner.

QTS Realty Trust provices secure, compliant data center solutions, hybrid cloud and fully managed services. QTS owns, operates or manages 24 data centers and supports more than 1,000 customers in North America, Europe and Asia Pacific.
